Hero Tevez hails four-goal salvo

Tevez has been an infrequent starter this season for United

Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez hailed the first four-goal haul of his career after their stunning 5-3 victory over Blackburn in the Carling Cup.

Tevez, who struggles to start on a regular basis in the Premier League, said: "I'm proud to score four goals.

"It is the first time I have done it in my career and it is better because it came for Manchester United.

"I have not played very often, so I was looking forward to the game and I am happy with my performance."

Sir Alex Ferguson made 10 changes from the 1-0 derby win over Man City on Sunday and he admitted the players had given him a selection headache with their displays.

"The great bonus for me is that we have players who are now coming into form," said the Scot.

"It definitely makes my job more difficult, although it also makes the club stronger.

"The good thing is we have a big strong squad who will all be staying with us."

Blackburn boss Paul Ince, who is coming under increasing pressure with his team struggling in the Premier League, bemoaned the goals they conceded.

"We were doing fine in the first half and didn't look in any danger, then suddenly we concede two goals just before half time," said Ince.

"We got back into the game with that goal after half-time but when they got the penalty and it was 3-1 that killed us.

"We have come to Old Trafford and scored three goals, but you can't defend like we did."
